Most widely held works by Michel Verschaeve
La caravane du Caire : [opéra-ballet en trois actes] ; Le jugement de Midas by André-Ernest-Modeste Grétry( )

2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Caravane du Caire is one of the rare works that Grétry composed for the Académie Royale that respected the conventions of the institution. Full of verve and color, this opera was one of the greatest successes of his career. A few exotic touches and the presence of a ballet also contributed to the score's success

L'incoronazione di Dario by Antonio Vivaldi( Recording )

14 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'L'incoronazione di Dario', composed in 1717, is the Vivaldi Edition's 16th opera and its 53rd release. It marks the halfway point in a bold enterprise launched by Naive in 2000: the recording of the 450 works in Vivaldi's personal library. In the footsteps of the Mozart and Bach revivals 30 years ago, this is the most ambitious recording project of the century. 'L’incoronazione di Dario' must be considered one of Vivaldi’s most successful operas. Immediately opening with exceptional arias, it moves at a rapid pace, holding the listener’s attention throughout. Recitatives are interspersed with arioso interludes and there no less than eight 'big' numbers sure to join the ranks of 'Vivaldi’s best opera arias'. The excellent cast acts out this drama with conviction: Anders Dahlin’s sings Dario, with impeccable intonation and stunning coloratura passages; Sara Mingardo, as Statira, brings great depth and beauty, most especially in her Act 2 solo Cantata accompanied only by viola da gamba. Delphine Galou sings with an impressive natural ability and passion and two of her arias in particular are sure to remain benchmarks: 'D’un bel viso' and 'Ferri, ceppi, sangue, morte'; Roberta Mameli, Riccardo Novaro, Sophia Soloviy and Lucia Cirillo are all excellent and each of them has at least one star aria. Ottavio Dantone’s conducting is marked by his ability to bring out the many subtilties in this music and by his profound understanding of recitativos which he is able to bring fully to life as theatre."--Naive website
